you up to 10 minutes for the appeal of the cu. you can use all of that time or as much as you would like. >> president chiu and supervisors, thank you. i represent the cow hollow association. i will present the talking points regarding the final mitigated-declaration appeal. then i will continue on to the cu and, with president chiu's permission, ceded the rest of my time to a member of the cow hollow association. the overarching point before us today is about transparency and consistency and processed. the cha is entitled to a full and complete objective analysis under ceqa, rather than go through all of the points that the association has put forward or referred to you in the written materials and discussed what i think are the most important. first, the city violated ceqa by failing to perform required analysis before approving the project. before approving a project subject to ceqa, the city must consider a final eir or neg dec. the california supreme court has emphasized that ceqa requires environmental review to refer to products first rather than final approval. by lending it
entities could use it on a daily basis as well. obviously, in an emergency -- in an earthquake or a disaster -- everybody becomes an emergency services worker. when something big hits, obviously, i think any city employee would be eligible to use the system. and we are actually working to expand the definition even more to allow public works -- there are a variety of functions that the city performs that i would consider public safety functions. we are just trying to expand the definition as broadly as possible. on the question of devices -- absolutely. both the arra and the fcc are setting specific standards and requirements for these networks. we are negotiating to make sure we have clear language in our agreement with motorola. motorola has to ensure that any device that is certified is compliant by the fcc or the national standards agency in washington will operate to it's full functionality on the network. we believe that is a key component, to develop a key market for devices and hopefully drive down the price of those devices. do you have my contact information? i love t
using public transit. i think there is a certain investment that comes with this. it is an investment you see played out in something like the social security program. the fact that it applies to everyone means that everyone is invested. we want everyone to be invested in public transportation, which is why i believe we need to make this happen. with that, i leave it to you, and respectfully ask for your support. thank you for your patience. i know it is late in the day. thank you to the young people who have come out, and to the parents as well. supervisor avalos: thank you. and i want to thank the commission for working on this resolution and bringing it to us, and of course the supervisor, for bringing this over, and all the youth who are here and not here who worked on this issue. i know it is a citywide issue. i look at the petition sent to us and i see virtually every zip code of san francisco on the petition. i probably can assume it is not just young people, that adults have signed on to the petition, so there are allies supporting young people supporting the idea of free muni

, community member, artist, and worker for many of us in the city. and also a dear friend of mine. upon hearing on his sighting at -- upon hearing of a sudden passing last wednesday, there was a community outpouring of support, love, and sadness for our loss. e was not only someone who was a friend, but an angel in our community. someone who game -- sony gave countless hours to our youth and families, acting as a tutor who, working at united players for many years, and also at west egg and being one of the goodest people i have ever met. i am truly saddened for his loss. i am sorry, i was going to try to keep it together. i know that many of our members and young people miss him as well. i have a lot more to say about him, but i do not think i can finish. we have a certificate to honor -- we have an immemorial -- an in memoriam that is co-sponsored by others. the amount of care that he had for citizens was unbelievable. i have known him since his work supporting artists and his love of music. as a school board member, he would call me all the time to check up on students to see if i cou

been before us over and over again in this body whether to televise the ethics commission. a lot of us have said it should be. i think we should make that statement clear. it always comes down to a question of whether we have money. i think we should make that determination. but i like the language without the amendment. president chiu: with that, i think supervisor avalos would like to rescind that last boat. seconded by supervisor elsbernd. on the motion to amend, is there further discussion? if i could speak for a moment, i absolutely support our colleagues that want to make sure these meetings are televised, and i understand we are going to find the budget to do that. i think it is appropriate, what supervisor elsbernd has stated, but i am also supporting supervisor campos's legislation. supervisor campos: i understand what supervisor avalos is saying, but i do not think it prevents us from moving forward to ensure these are televised. i think the ordinance i am introducing will get us to that. but i certainly appreciate the perspective. supervisor avalos: i just think it makes a m

>> our issue is not affordable housing but any use that it serves. this is not chp or with larkin street. this is about the choice of this particular building in a myriad of zoning exceptions. the city could have avoided this process. i have a thought and with the outline and outreach plan. out reach in this case can mean identifying decision makers that will support and pass required legislation that includes the planning department, the mayor, his staff. after they reach out to the supporters among the community leaders, neighborhood associations and can influence the back of the project. only after the project is virtually insured legislative passage, political cover did they contact the neighbors. they have traded an uncooperative atmosphere with the stress of the people in the area. the project sponsor has purchasing deadlines for the building and they needed the zoning from the city. there is $4.4 million to spy out reach. no decision makers lived near the property. >> let me ask anyone watching this if you wish to speak in support of the appellants, please come up to the he
the author of this book a hard-line, the republican party and u.s. foreign policy since world war two. professor, what is hard-line mean? >> such as the title because i think it sums up one of the main arguments in the book which is that the republican party, at least since the 1950's as that of foreign policy approach that tends to be hard line by which i mean hawkish on foreign policy, taking very seriously the idea that there are threats out there to the estates and trying to be uncompromising and face those threats. that is pretty consistent. there has also been variety in the sense of what the can -- the particular republican approach has been. quite a bit. >> well, that was my next question. sixty-seven years since the end of world war ii. about 66 and 67 years. thirty-four of those have had republican presidents. has there been a consistency among those republican presidents? >> the main consistency has been the one we just described, the idea that the u.s. is spinning days under republican presidents and having the isolationist policy since the '20s, a tendency toward a hard-l
was alluding to earlier. under your estimation, as people who run ceqa for us, when is a project approved? >> thank you, supervisor farrell. i would prefer to speak to the particulars of this case, which are that the loan was approved in july of 2010 did not commit the city to a definitive course of action. the particulars of the loan for this project required that even in the event of a default, the city would be able to recover its money. the loan itself does not commit the city two particular points of action and supporting the project. supervisor farrell: i understand your point and i read that point. is in the converse true then? it goes both ways, is what i am saying. one person -- you could view it and understand it and say, there are certain outlooks for the city, if it is not approved, there would be certain things. on the flip side, could someone say the same? that the city is committed if the planning department approves it and the board of supervisors approves it, and so forth. >> in my previous experience, a project approval would consist of building permits, application use

a national crisis. >> more than 14 million people in the united states do not have a job. u.s. unemployment is now a national crisis. federal reserve board chairman bernanke sees the current unemployment crisis as widespread, enduring and unprecedented. >> we've had now close to 10% unemployment now for a number of years, and of the people who are unemployed, about 45% have been unemployed for six months or more. >> that 45% figure adds up to roughly six million americans them have not had a job in the past six months. mr. bernanke also says long- term unemployed could well become the permanently unemployed. the bernanke comments come in the middle of a nationwide protest movement called occupy wall street. these protestors are demonstrating against wall street and its corporations. , who they believe caused the ongoing unemployment crisis. boston, baltimore, chicago, denver, kansas city, los angeles, new york, san francisco, seattle, st. louis, washington, d.c. have all seen the wall street demonstrations. president obama's former green energy advisor, ben jones, compares the protests to t
to us. i appreciate it and i know the commissioner appreciates it. i want to add onto one thing that the chief said. as to, and this is just my view, i am not speaking on behalf of the commission, as to the option of simply opting out, not only is portland a different city with potential different threats, but the portland police are not members of the jttf. in the suggestion that we could opt out and remain members of the jttf is not accurate. my personal view is that it is important for our officers to be able to -- in order -- if there is a bomb threat, of our officers need to have a timely access for information to the coordinate responses. -- to help coordinate responses. i would counsel people against seeing the portland model as a solution. i think we have a better solution here, which is making sure our officers, when they are assigned to participate in the jttf, do so under our guidelines and consistent with our values and general orders. that is what we have here. i think it is better than what borland has and it has something to do, in large part, because of the press
with everything you need to know. head to right now. stay connected to us 24/7 on twitter. have a great weekend. >>> hello, everyone. thank you for joining us. i'm fredricka whitfield. we're letting you hear from the 2012 republican contenders. they're speaking, unedited, uninterrupted and at length. we'll start that in 60 seconds. but first, a look at some of the top stories of the day. a banking crisis is unfolding in europe. the leaders of france and germany today agreed to work out a plan to recapitalize several banks, hard hit by debt crisis in greece and other european countries. the announcement comes on the same day france, belgium, and luxembourg agreed to rescue dexia, a major franco belgian bank. a couple of hours ago, i spoke with cnn's senior international business correspondent, richard quest. he tells me that what is going on in europe is very similar to what happened in america back in 2008. >> you really don't want the investment bank to fail. why? because a big investment bank failing of this particular time would cause a ripple of crisis of confidence and that's what
years. many of us are approached by the fbi for no reason. really, no reason. all my time here, i lived among the many other arab-americans who along with me are being mistreated for no other reason than for the way we look in who we are. it is based on the way we look at our background. that is not fair to anybody. we have been harassed and missed treated by the law enforcement authorities. -- and mistreated by the law enforcement authorities. they treat us like second-class citizens, and that is not fair. these acts of discrimination are attacking our identity, dignity as arab-americans. they deny our constitutional rights as u.s. citizens. these acts of discrimination are affecting our community. they are causing stress and fear. they also impact our community's education, growth, and development. and i mean it. i am an arab-american. i have responsibilities and rights as a u.s. citizen. if they cannot protect my human rights and dignity, as part of this nation, does that mean anything to me? do i need it? we do not deserve this type of discrimination. therefore, i urge you to act no
't written your books. you've written over 30. tell us some of your stories and background stories. >> i was a dominican in the roman catholic church. i worked there for many years. -- for 34 years. the present pope came after me and fired me and got me exspelled from the order after 34 years. i kept teaching. i want went from holy name's college in oakland where i was. >> why? >> well, they had a list of things, calling god mother. the bible does it, but not often enough. and i support women's ordination. i don't condemn gay people and i prefer original blessing. that's the title of one of my books. it was a list like that. not impressive, actually. >> original blessing was the first book i read of yours. why was that such an upsetting thing for the church and for others? >> it starts things over, frankly. since the 4th century, the church built a lot of edifice on sin. it's not good theology, frankly, it's good empire building. if you want an empire, teach original sin. original blessing empowers people. so i think it was a basic threat to the institution as it is. yet, i think that's
they have locally. it takes care a lot of the problems they use it much more effectively. >> history has shown a number of a wrongful convictions have been based upon the testimony of jailhouse informants. what, if anything, will you do to ensure against false testimony? >> i strongly supported that legislation and i am glad that it passed. we need to be very skeptical of this testimony and put in all of the proper procedures. even in concert with other evidence, we need to be very skeptical. again, the job of the d.a. is to do justice, not to convict. we need to make sure that our evidence is completely reliable. >> and his use of incentivized witnesses is a terrible practice. these people are in jail for a reason and they become self interest. we talked about getting witnesses from the jail. and we should know exactly what is going on in these jails. people go into jail and they don't come out. sometimes they died. why should we know exactly what is occurring? we should know, just -- they don't have any right to privacy in jail. we should know the truth. maybe he is telling the truth.
announcements? ok, how about public comments? supervisor farrell has joined us. actually quite a while ago. we were not able to introduce him at the beginning of the meeting. anything you would like to say, supervisor? supervisor farrell: i'm fine, thanks. have a good weekend. >> if there's no public comment and no further comment, this meeting is adjourned. thank you all so much for coming. >> to you have an ipad? >> no, i do not. >> good afternoon. balkan to the public utilities commission meeting, brought to order. -- welcome to the public utilities commission meeting, brought to order. please call role. >> commissioner moran, commissioner caen, commissioner tores, commissioner courtney,. commissioner vietor is excused from today's meeting. >> i believe that mr. shepherd as a substitute language? >> an alternative language is the redline copy in the folder, paragraph three, just a clarification that shows a significant a larger change in clarifying the understanding of what was said. following public comment and after additional comment, the commissioners address for wholesale customers thr
. that is a fact. it is vital that we stop using 20th-century approaches to solve 21st century problems. there is very little justification for projection of water use increases. the numbers are going the other way. i go back to the fact that the economy is in trouble. we need jobs. we could be taking this $200,000 and hiring a crew of workers to install permeable pavement right now. that would put a few people to work. that is the kind of thing we need to be doing with $200,000 in the middle of the great recession, which many are climbing is over, but obviously is not. we need to pick people to work, -- put people to work, not do a study when scores of proposed desalinization projects in this country -- only one is going forward. that is because when environmentalists like myself come forward and make the case, we prove the case. this is not an environmental way to solve our water and global warming problems. vice president moran: mr. brooks? >> you would concede there is a need in the central valley for more water, correct? it does not fit the model you were referencing earlier. where

cohen for your comments. i think it is spot on. this issue of us not having a process or not a complete one -- to be honest, the process we went through to have this initial proposal was a public process. it initiated from the ethics commission. the ethics commissioners voted on it. it came to our board. it was vetted to our process and had public comment period to behave as though this was not a process that was complete or thoreau is inaccurate. i want to make that point. about process -- even if we voted for this, that does not prevent another public process to figure out how to improve public financing. using process as an excuse to not deal with an impending litigation risk is irresponsible and inaccurate. that is the comment i would like to make. president chiu: supervisor cohen, are you still on the roster? supervisor cohen: i am back on their roster. it is going to be a long night. this is only item 11. in the interest of transparency, when we cast our vote -- pay attention to some quick math. who is up for reelection? where do they vote? do not get me wrong. p
